Here’s a great band and a great song. If you’re ever in the need of an uplifting song, well here you go; it gives me the chills every time I listen to it. It’s so down to earth and speaks a universal truth.
The message is simple and great because you only live once; so cherish every moment in your life and make the best out of it. We can’t let such a beautiful gift go to waste. So live life to the fullest for tomorrow may never come.
Everything you do is a life experience. The advertising industry is so competitive (especially if you’re going in the art/creative direction). Based on some of my conversations with professional creatives, “It’s a day’s pay for a day’s work”.
Despite coming up with genius ideas that are on strategy and achieve the client’s objectives, pursuing a career in the art/creative direction takes a confident person who is able to stand behind his/her work.
We all have different styles of work that flow through our creative thinking minds. Thus we all see things differently, so you don’t have to be afraid of expressing yourself and your feelings. If you don’t do it when you have the opportunity to, you may/will never get that chance again. It may be too late to make the best out of your work, just as you will never get a second chance to make the best of each day that passes.
As an intern at Small Army, every day has been a great experience for me to gain valuable skills and network with industry professionals from all walks of life. If you get your foot in the door of any ad agency (or job in any industry), make the best of every moment you have there. Network as much as possible; learn new things; tackle new tasks that you may have never done before; get out there and push yourself.
Everything you do is a life experience that can only take you further in life.
